Paris, France — It’s finally here, an enticing, open to all wine academy at the crossroads of two great wine making regions, Burgundy and Beaujolais. The Wine School by Fabrice Sommier is nestled into a 19th century manor house in the charming French town of Mâcon and is slated to open its doors on March 15th. Workshops, events, a wine library, a boutique and wine tourism are all on the agenda for beginners, experts and epicureans alike in a convivial and elegant setting. Because as Goethe said, « Life is too short to drink bad wine. »

No less than 30 workshops are available ranging from two to three hours in length with a selection of six to nine wines. You can explore 14 wine producing regions of France and the wines of five continents. There is also an intriguing workshop exploring the seven families of French spirits. Mr. Sommier is an expert sommelier who has been awarded the prestigious MOF title, Meilleur Ouvrier de France, which recognizes excellence in a certain number of craft professions including sommeliers or wine stewards. Born in the beautiful central French region of the Berry, he has worked as head sommelier in some of France’s finest restaurants.
